Wyandotte Nation holds annual Environmental Festival


The Wyandotte Nation's annual Environmental Festival was held Friday on the Wyandotte Nation Pow-Wow grounds.  The event featured booths providing educational opportunities for area students and community members.

This is the seventh-year for the event.

Organizers say it's a good opportunity to teach kids the importance of preserving our environment.

"The kids are the best resources we have for helping it," says Christen Lee, Wyandotte Nation Environmental Director.  "It will be their Earth after we're gone and we want to continue to preserve it for future generations.  If we don't keep our community healthy, our water won't stay healthy, and it's not good to drink water that ain't good for us.  It's a good time to get out and recycle.  You can make glass into new things and trash into new things."

One of the day's most popular attractions was a "rain simulator".  Kids got a chance to see the erosion process, and learn more about taking care of soil.
